    This is the new instalment of Soul Jazz Records’ ground-breaking Deutsche Elektronische Musik
    series, ‘a near-definitive guide to some of the world's most extraordinary music’ (The Guardian). This new Soul Jazz release features many of the classic German electronic and Krautrock groups from the 1970s & 80s – including Can, Amon Düül II, Harmonia, Conrad Schnitzler, Agitation Free, Roedelius – as well as a host of lesser known artists such as Dzyan, Klaus Weiss, Gruppe Between and many more.

    Deutsche Elektronische rarities unearthed on the album include Kalacakra (whose fan-base included the great Moondog!) and their superb ‘Nearby Shiras,’ taken from their super-rare spiritual/psychedelic private press concept album Crawling to Lhasa, from 1972. Deutsche Elektronische 4 includes a wealth of German electronic experimental artists – the seminal pioneering group Harmonia (Roedelius, Moebius and Michael Rother), avant-garde guru
    Conrad Schnitzler as well as lesser known synthetic artists such as Klaus Weiss, Deutsche Wertarbeit, E.M.A.K. (Elektronische Musik Aus Köln), Günter Schickert and others.

    Finally, the album also features an array of heavy and progressive German cosmic rock groups – Dzyan, Virus and the amazing Turkish/German tripped out sound of Alex’s ‘Patella Black’, recorded at Can’s Inner Space in 1973, produced by Holger Czukay and Jackie Liebezeit.
    Deutsche Elektronische 4 comes with extensive newly commissioned sleevenotes by David
    Stubbs, author of the seminal books ‘Future Days: Krautrock and the building of Modern
    Germany’, ‘Mars By 1980: The story of Electronic Music’, and ‘Krautrock: Cosmic Rock and its Legacy’.
    This album comes as a heavyweight triple vinyl edition with full colour inner sleeves, as well as a deluxe double CD edition with outsize booklet and slipcase. Both formats include full liner notes and extensive rare photography.
